Goodbye summer… Hello fall!
Yesterday, we had a plans of going on a post-dinner walk with the kids to celebrate the Autumn Equinox. Hmm, that didn’t happen. But we will do it one of these evenings just to see how different things look and feel now that crisp autumn days are ahead – cool and sunny at the same time.
We can feel the shift already as the summer weary sun dips below the horizon earlier and earlier each evening and how the parched earth welcomes a spray of cool rain.
It’s time to embrace knitting not just for the process but also for the warmth. Functional and fun all rolled into one – lovely hobby this. Getting stuck into cool weather knitting is going to be wonderful. That’s why as soon as I finished my Spring Forward Socks, I cast on for the Spring Beret. Why I keep choosing patterns that have “boing, boing” in their title, I do not know! Anyways, here’s what we gals were upto this morning.
The bebe catching up on her reading – all of 4 pages and she actually looked through the pictures this time!
And me with my knitting and some mmm…coffee.
Berets promise instant gratification knitting. Considering that I’m a knitting slow poke, we’ll have to see.
